Phoenix Contact introduces FL mGuard security devices
The FL mGuard solution has dedicated hardware providing security functions, which allows higher data throughput rates than software-based solutions. There are no limitations to the operating system or the type of devices connected to the FL mGuard. It can protect PCs running all versions of Windows, as well as PLCs, I/O units, bus couplers and other industrial Ethernet devices.
The PCI version of the FL mGuard is currently the only PCI form factor security device that combines firewall, routing and VPN in a single device. It integrates quickly and easily, without modifications to the system settings or driver installation.
The FL mGuard RS is an ideal solution for applications that currently need a modem but might migrate to an Internet-based VPN connection in the future. It includes an optional integrated modem that can serve as a backup connection. This makes connections to the remote site future-proof.
The mGuard products complement Phoenix Contact's broad range of industrial Ethernet products, including switches, I/O, Power over Ethernet, software and wireless.
